and john kerry fought it out every day about the war. in 2008 we were at war, and barack obama and john mccain fought it out every day in that war. this week when the financial crisis was absolutely on fire, at that debate, they were talking about the wars. this year, president obama does bring it up, he does bring it up at most of his stump speeches, how he explains what he has done and planning on doing talking about the two wars. he doesn't have to say much more because he's speaking to an empty room. the romney campaign has no identifiable position on afghanistan. they have been unwilling and unable to hold up that side of debate and so regardless of what it means for the candidates as a country we are deprived of a national discussion about a war we are in. 70,000 american families having skin in the game right now. we have -- that's part of the reason i'm looking forward to the debates. some ways sort of a post-policy campaign. and you can't do that in a debate, at least unless the debate is really bad. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so
hopeful? we will hear from both of them in minutes. >>> meanwhile, blocks away, president obama gets ready to address united nations over an hour from now. he is getting the low-key no news drop-by that his team was hoping for? he is getting heat making time for "the view" but not fellow leaders. a big time in missouri. if todd aiken exits the senate race he has to do it by 5:00 p.m. today. if not, it's on to november but the yemt battled congressman shows no sign of dropping out. good morning from new york. it's tuesday, september 25th, 2012. i'm chuck todd live outside of the new york public library, nbc's occasieducation nation su behind me. coming up, i will show you live pictures and monitoring and waiting for bill clinton to introduce mitt romney at his global giving conference and when that happens, we will take it to you live and give you a little bit of mitt romney's remarks. he is presenting an intriguing plan of a public private partnership when it comes to foreign aid. one that my guess is won't get taken out of a partisan lens but ought to win time -- when the time comes for i
and three administrations, the obama white house. a midder middle east diplomacy for msnbc and washington institute. dennis, let's talk about what netanyahu signaled he's doing today, demanding an ultimatum to iran on its nuclear program something the administration, the white house, has insisted they needambiguous. who is right here? >> imnot sure there is as wide a gap as you think. i believe what you're seeing is an agreement on the objective of making certain that iran cannot have nuclear weapons and then also i think agreeing that you have to come up with some kind of threshold to know when the objective of prevention has a meaning and it doesn't lose its content. i do think where the prime minister's coming from is, he wants to put, i think, a premium on having a clear definition of what's the point past which if iran crosses that particular line or tloesh hohreshold you'r longer in a position to prevent them. my guess he'll focus on why it's unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapons capability and he'll speak in effect to the world about coming together on not just having ope

their way across battleground states, a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows president obama leading mitt romney in new hampshire. they're neck and neck in nevada and north carolina. tracie potts joins us in washington with more on this. good morning. >> reporter: as we've seen in polls earlier in the week, president obama seems to have a healthy lead in states like ohio and even florida. but in others, it's much closer. >> just getting elected will help. >> reporter: mitt romney's message to donors last night as polls show a tight race in nevada and north carolina. romney's only two points behind president obama there. but seven points behind in new hampshire. >> now your job is in danger. >> reporter: both sides came out swinging with new campaign ads thursday. >> if i could sit down with you in your living room or around the kitchen table, here's what i'd say -- >> reporter: what he said in virginia beach was something new, something he calls economic patriotism. >> an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middl
online finally, losing weight clicks. >>> president obama is in new york right now. he will address the united nations general assembly kicking off cha will be an extremely busy day for both candidates mixing policy and politics. but both the president's foreign policy and his schedule are coming under fire. he will not meet with a single world leader while the united nations is in session. that is a big break with tradition. instead, leaving secretary of the state hillary clinton with a nearly nonstop series of meetings including meeting with the leaders of afghanistan, egypt and pakistan. but the president did take an appearance on the talk show "the view." >> i just have a different vision about how we grow an economy. i think that you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> and while the president took a shot at mitt romney over the economy, romney was hammering him over foreign policy. insisting the president's comments about bumps in the road in the middle east were out of line. >> these are developments we do not want to see. >> i want to bring in my fa
and says that obama is willing to be shaped by external events. i mean, it's really something that we should be laughing or maybe crying at and not taking it all seriously. >> okay. well, dana, corn is utterly dismissing mr. romney. romney's foreign policy mouthpiece was challenged by andrea mitchell to defend his somewhat hawkish posture towards iran. take a listen, dana. >> is governor romney really prepared to go to war with iran right now and open up a regional war? >> so governor romney has not advocated military action and any suggestion that he has by the president or his surrogates is a mischaracterization. >> dana, i'm sorry, so romney doesn't advocate military action, but the president is weak for not advocating military action. how does that one work? >> let me explain it that way, the position romney is taking on any foreign policy issue is he disagrees with president obama regardless of president obama's position on this. afghanistan. he disagrees with it. what would he do differently? >> nothing. >> we don't know. he disagrees with the position on iran, on israel. what w
